Whether you’re looking to stretch and strengthen your automotive knowledge, connect with fellow car lovers like yourself, or just see some of the awesome car projects practicing technicians have going on under the hood, every auto enthusiast has their go-to list of top automotive blogs they follow.
If you’re building up or expanding yours, Automotive Training Center can certainly help! We found three car blogs to-be technicians will want to bookmark for getting their daily dose of auto inspiration.
Cary Car Care
For an inside look at the goings on in an active service center, follow Cary Car Care and their 11-member service team that has earned the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence. Recent posts include a closer look at their new alignment machine, a Hunter Hawkeye Elite, and a rundown of some of the hobbies their resident technicians enjoy outside of the shop, such as gardening and playing on their local softball team.
This blog also hosts fun challenges like filming a goofy video of one of the many sounds your car makes to share with the car community.
Who is the Humble Mechanic? A practicing Volkswagen technician who tells all about working in today’s high-tech auto industry. You’ll want to keep an eye out for several different categories in Humble Mechanic’s archives, including the adventures of Luv a Dub, the author’s psychedelic Volkswagen Cabriolet project car with a totally colorful sidewalk chalk exterior.
Don’t miss the Shop Shots photo series for close-ups of what to do and what not to do when it comes to car repairs. There’s also tool giveaways and a podcast entitled “Behind the Wrench.”
Meyer’s Auto Parts
Did you know Bruce Springsteen used to be a mechanic? How about the reason behind why European cars are smaller than American cars? If you kept up with the Meyer’s Auto Parts blog, you would know these fun car facts and more!
This blog explores the auto realm through a unique lens and is likely to drum up some interesting trivia and tidbits you didn’t know about. There’s also useful tips with a twinge of humor like the 10 commandments to attending a car show. These guys really know their stuff: they’re drawing on over 40 years of experience in the auto parts biz.
Whether you’re getting a sneak peek of a day in the life of an auto technician or queuing up your conversation starters for that family party, these automotive blogs are helpful resources to look up often. As a fellow blog writer, ATC certainly appreciates these providers’ passions for the industry.
